Olympiakos vs Viktoria Plzen’s for the Champions League Qualification match on Tuesday at Karaiskakis Stadium.
In one of the several matches, this Tuesday in European football, the Champions League qualifying group stage quarter-finals of the second leg of the knockout round will be playing against each other, Olympiakos and Viktoria Plzen’s in the Greek city of Piraeus. In the 1st leg, there was a goalless draw in the town of Plzen in the Czech Republic.
The Olympiakos team heads into this match of the quarter-final round of the Champions League group stage after adding up a result that cannot be considered positive in the game played with their opponents in this tie.
Greece’s runners-up are obliged to score in this match or at least hold on 0-0 until they can achieve something in extra time or penalties, and a goal conceded could precipitate a Greek defeat in the knockout round, as it would put the Czechs ahead in the tie.
Viktoria Plzen comes for this match of the second leg of this round, after adding a result in the game of last week that turned out to be something positive, because they didn’t allow any goal to the visiting team.
This is positive if we consider that the Czech team had some opportunities to score the goal throughout the match, even though they were able to control the team led by Pedro Martins quite well.
Given what was a very tactical and balanced match in the first leg of this tie with two teams that were equal and considering the importance of this game for both, I expect a low number of goals scored here.
